Can we really just visit a blog and share only part of our lives? Especially the part that is supposed to permeate every fiber of our beings?

"Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers...

For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness?

Or what fellowship has light with darkness?

What accord has Christ with Belial?

Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever?

What agreement has the temple of God with idols?

For we are the temple of the living God;

as God said,

"I will make my dwelling among them and walk among them,
and I will be their God,
and they shall be my people.

Therefore go out from their midst,
and be separate from them, says the Lord,

and touch no unclean thing;
then I will welcome you,

and I will be a father to you,
and you shall be sons and daughters to me,
says the Lord Almighty."

2 Corinthians 6:14-18


My daughter and I went to "youth night" at church and we worshipped together in "her" setting.

The speaker was a little nutty, but good. At one point he broke people into four basic groups (we all fit into all four groups once in a while)

1) VIP's (very impactful people)
2) VTP's (very teachable people)
3) VNP's (very nice people)
4) VDP's (very draining people)

The two that struck me over so many "controversies" are #1 and #3.

There are a few folks out there who are VIP's who are ready to take on hell with a squirtgun.

Then there are the VNP's who say, "I'll bring the cookies."

The ones who are exhort others to at least acknowledge the battle, "Come'on! Hell's creeping in on us. Go get your sqirtgun!" And the ones who exhort, "please-can't-we-all-just-get-along!"

Which would you rather be?
(VNP can also be "Very Non-Productive)
